Hello everyone as newone here I would like to aks you to share your opinions how fast did you learn to do winter ski on basic level?
For day or two or few hours or even more than some days?
I really felt bad first time while I was learning and watching some "todlers" as born on them

Working for my lovely company - holiday apartment London for an year

Depends on how coordinated you are. I'm actually pretty klutzy and I've been up on the mountain a few times - where have always been disastrous. But at the same time, it's still fun - I don't really expect myself to be a pro skier so there's really not ego involved. -

It varies! Some people are very fast learners.
Children often learn quicker than adults, within a day snowploughing and maybe heading onto some green runs.
Sporty adults are also quick learners as fitness isn't so much of a problem and they tend to be well co-ordinated.
There is one thing in common though, everyone feels rubbish to start with!
The learning process is the fun bit!

If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.
